ORQUESTA BARROCA DE SEVILLA DOYLE CASAL RENTERIA
The musical styles of Europe always arrive a bit later in Spain, but with the advantage that they are transformed to full maturity. This album shows a unique version of how a symphony by Haydn was transformed for a performance in the Cahedral of Sevilla. But the real interests here are the until now unrecorded masterpieces by Antonio Ripa and Joseph Barrera. As always, Enrico Onofri ensures a top performance with the great baroque Orchestra of Sevilla. Enrico Onofri was born in Ravenna, Italy. His career began with an invitation from Jordi Savall to be the concertmaster of La Capella Real. Very soon he found himself working with groups such as Concentus Musicus Wien, Ensemble Mosaiques and Concerto Italiano. From 1987 to 2010 he was the concertmaster and soloist of Il Giardino Armonico. He founded the chamber group Imaginarium Ensemble to perform the Italian baroque repertoire. Enrico Onofri has been the professor of baroque violin and interpretation of baroque music at the Conservatorio Bellini in Palermo since 2000.
